Ever since I was a kid, I loved peanut butter.
My day was filled with peanut butter sandwiches and just spoonfuls of peanut butter straight out the jar. Those were the days.
Now I have become more sophisticated in my peanut butter consumption. More sophisticated by baking with them so that I can hide the fact that I am consuming super-human amounts of peanut butter in one sitting.
So for all those peanut butter lovers out there, I suggest you make these. You will thank me.
If not, you can always take a spoon and scoop some peanut butter and Nutella on it. Since that is a classic move for me after a long day, I will not judge.
